Jonathan Goldstein is from Manhattan, New York, and he studied acting at NYU and Northwestern University. After graduating college, Goldstein moved to Hollywood to pursue acting. In Hollywood, Goldstein waited tables for ten years to help pay the bills between acting gigs. In a bizarre twist of fate, one of Goldstein’s regular customers turned out to be none other than Dan Schneider, who did not recognize his favorite waiter in his Drake & Josh audition tape. "After he picked me his wife Lisa looked at the tape and said, ‘Hey, isn’t that our waiter Jonathan?’", Goldstein explained. Goldstein continues to act, sing, and teach theater. His Birthday is December 4th.
